Instructions

1. Begin with properly fired cone 04 bisque. Moisten a sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust. 

2. Take the MC-002 12mm Low Track Masking Tape and make a horizontal line around two inches down from the top of the canvas. Repeat at the bottom of the canvas.

3. Take the bottle of SC-13 Grapel and squeeze a thick line right next to the tape on the top of the canvas (on the side closest to the edge of the canvas). Repeat with SC-16 Cotton Tail, SC-6 Sunkissed, SC-16 Cotton Tail and SC-11 Blue Yonder. You will be working towards the top of the canvas. Most of the canvas in that area should now be covered with a thick coat of glaze.

4. Take your needle tool and make quick passes through the glaze. This will promote mixing of the colors. When you have achieved your desired look, hold the canvas with the top pointing down and gently tap it against a hard surface covered in paper towels. This will allow the excess glaze to run off of the canvas and intensify the design. 

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the bottom half of the canvas.

6. Using the DSS-0156 Llama Drama screen, locate the llama, cactus, flower and leaves. Draw an outline around them in permanent marker. Cut them out with excess screen around the edges.

7. Squeeze about two tablespoons of SC-15 Tuxedo onto the plate. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more Silkscreen Medium or glaze.

8. Place the llama head in the center of the canvas. While holding it firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed Silkscreen Medium, and gently rub in circles staring in the center and working outward. Slowly pull up the screen to avoid smearing. 

9. Squeeze about two tablespoons of SC-36 Irish Luck onto the plate. Add a pinch of AC-310 Silkscreen Medium. Mix with a palette knife until it becomes the consistency of peanut butter. You may need to add more Silkscreen Medium or glaze.

10. Place the cactus, flower and leaves in their corresponding locations on the canvas. Refer to image. Screen one at a time. While holding them firmly in place, take a small amount of premixed Silkscreen Medium, and gently rub in circles staring in the center and working outward. Slowly pull up the screen to avoid smearing. 

11. Using the Script Liner and Detail Liner with yle="font-size: 12.16px;">SC-54 Vanilla Dip, apply two coats of glaze to the head of the llama. Use the Detail Liner with yle="font-size: 12.16px;">SC-41 Brown Cow to shade the llama head. 

12. Using the Detail Liner with SC-27 Sour Apple, SC-1 Pink-A-Boo, SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral, SC-24 Dandelion, SC-75 Orange-A-Peel, SC-13 Grapel and SC-11 Blue Yonder, apply two coats of glaze to the corresponding areas of the llama head. Refer to image. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

13. Using the Script Liner with SC-27 Sour Apple, apply two coats to the cactus and leaves. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

14. Using the Detail Liner with SC-89 Cutie Pie Coral, apply two coats to the flower. Allow glaze to dry between coats. 

15. Mix the bubble solution. Add 1 TBS water, 1 TBS SC-97 Cant-elope and 2 drops of liquid dish soap to the disposable cup. Mix with the straw. Use the straw to blow bubbles in the cup. As the bubbles extend out of the cup, scrape them off with the palette knife and place them on the background of the canvas. Do this until the background is covered in bubbles. Avoid the screened areas. 

16. Using the Soft Fan with SC-15 Tuxedo, apply two coats of glaze to the edges of the canvas. Allow glaze to dry between coats.

17. Using the Soft Fan, apply two coats of S-2101 Clear Brushing Glaze to the center portion of the canvas or dip into NT-CLR Clear Dipping Glaze. 

18. Fire to cone 06.
